Isles of Scilly

The Tresco island is the most interesting with lots of sea history and the gardens built on the side of a hill are splendid with plants and flora from around the world.

On Tuesday 12 February at Knights Hill, David Cook, one of our professional artists, gave a really informative and interesting talk to around 20 members of the Association. There were so many members talking to him and asking questions afterwards I was worried he was not going to be able to get away home!
